Charlie Sheen has revealed that he has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder…
Appearing on Dr Oz on Monday, Sheen revealed that as well as his HIV diagnosis, which he revealed in November 2015, he also suffers with bipolar.
He explained that medical experts had warned him he could be a sufferer at various times over the years.
I’ve been described or diagnosed by enough people that I guess at some point you have to take a look at it.
Bipolar affects the way people feel, such as their moods. People can suffer extreme mood changes, sometimes feeling so low they feel depressed.
Charlie has said that this might be part of the reason why he had his ‘breakdown’.
Manic behaviour is usually in the throes of departing substance abuse and drinking. It doesn’t really happen when I’m not doing that.
Since being witch hunted by the press and forced to reveal he had HIV, Charlie has said he will be working hard to help find a cure for the disease.
If anybody can fight this thing and discover a cure, it’s me. I will exhaust every resource available to me. I will sit with every expert. I will move forward until something’s revealed.
